RowTec® UV

RowTec® UV UV Polycarbonate Film – PC9 RowTec® UV Film utilises a specialty UV modified resin which enables improved ultraviolet stability in outdoor environmental conditions. This film will exhibit less yellowing when compared to standard non-UV modified polycarbonate film. Applications include overlays, outdoor menu boards, nameplates, labels, and decals where UV stability is desired.

RowTec® UV UV Enhanced Polycarbonate Film – PC1 The first surface of our PC1-001-AM00 Film is made of a high performance UV Resistant Film that provides excellent UV blocking for the RowTec® polycarbonate film base. The first surface is a glare-free velvet texture while the second surface is fine matt. Standard thicknesses range from 0,178 mm - 0,762 mm. Common applications include outdoor nameplates, labels and decals as well as gas pump graphics.
